Hot Hands: Toronto begins Week 8 with an eight-game winning streak and an NBA-leading 20-4 record – the best start in team history. Meanwhile, Philadelphia has won four in a row and eight of nine. The red-hot teams meet Wednesday in Toronto on ESPN. The game, which fea-tures Cameroon natives and former Basketball Without Borders campers Joel Embiid of Philadelphia and Pascal Siakam of Toronto, will include a celebration of former South Africa President Nelson Mandela’s centenary.

Golden Nuggets: Before facing the 76ers on Wednesday, the Raptors host Denver tonight on NBA League Pass. It’ll be a matchup of conference leaders as the Nuggets have won five consecutive games to tie the LA Clippers atop the Western Conference. Denver ranks third in the NBA in defensive rating, up from 23rd last season and 29th in 2016-17. During Week 8, the Nuggets play four road games against Eastern Conference opponents.

Fifty Aplenty: Eight players have scored at least 50 points in a game this season – which is already two shy of the NBA single-season record. There have been just four other seasons in NBA history in which eight or more players posted a 50-point game.

THIS DAY IN THE NBA

December 3, 1946 Joe Fulks of the Philadelphia Warriors set what was then a league scoring mark with 37 points against the Providence Steamrollers at Philadelphia. Fulks’ 50 field goal attempts (he made 16) were the most by a player during a game in the NBA’s inaugural season and remained the record for the most field goal attempts by a rookie in a game for 13 years.

December 3, 1976 Seattle’s Fred Brown had 10 steals in a 121-112 victory at Philadelphia to tie an NBA record held by Jerry West and Larry Steele. The record would be broken 23 days later by San Antonio’s Larry Kenon, who picked up 11 steals at Kansas City.

December 3, 1990 The Boston Celtics honored long-time announcer Johnny Most by unveiling a banner bearing a microphone on the balcony facade near his old broadcast position. Most retired following the 1989-90 season after calling Celtics games on the radio for 37 years.

December 3, 1993 The Atlanta Hawks beat the Houston Rockets 133-111, ending Houston’s record-tying streak for the best start in NBA history at 15-0. The 15-0 start tied the all-time NBA record set by the Washington Capitols at the start of the 1948-49 season.
